• Obama’s Top General Admits: ‘ISIS Has the Momentum’

    When the guy running Obama’s military campaign against ISIS says that the Islamic State militants are “pretty good,” that’s when you know we’re in an unimaginably huge mess.

    ISIS fighters are “pretty good, and the troops that they were fighting at that particular location had been fighting for a long time, and they were tired, they had not been well supported in recent battles,” admitted to CBS News Foreign Affairs Correspondent Margaret Brennan in the wake of the fall of Ramadi.

    Obama appointed General Allen to head his Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL in September 2014.

    Allen’s interview comes just after it was reported that two ISIS-planned car bombs went off in front of two upscale Baghdad hotels, killing nine and injuring dozens more.

    Brennan also said that General Allen “admitted that ISIS has the momentum,” a departure from a flurry of previous Obama White House talking points.

    Even MSNBC hosts who usually give Obama every available benefit of the doubt are now shredding his foreign policy strategy to pieces.

    “The problem with the president’s policy” against ISIS is that “the policy doesn’t match the rhetoric,” NBC’s Meet the Press host Chuck todd said Friday. “The rhetoric is ‘destroy ISIS,’ the policy is ‘containment.'”

    One of the last major national polls that took the pulse of the American people’s feelings about how good of a job they thought Obama is doing against ISIS found that 58% of Americans disapprove. And oddly enough, that poll also found that 46% of Democrats disapprove of Obama’s ISIS and national security strategy.

    Again, 2016 can’t come quick enough.
